Lorrie Aston, from Essex, impressed members of the Family Lowdown Tips & Ideas Facebook group by showing how to showcase hard-to-reach items in supermarkets (pictured)
Lorrie shared a selection of short clips showing how a device at the end of shelves can be pulled forward to move items forward
Posting on Facebook, Lorie joked about turning 36 unaware of the hack. She said she would no longer ‘climb the shelves to get to the top’
Lorie shared a clip of her attempting to use the device at her local Tesco supermarket to reach for bottled drinks.
Impressed by her discovery, she wrote: ‘PSA – Can’t I be the only person who turned 36 and didn’t know about this hack of shooting bottles forward?!?
“No more climbing the shelves to reach the top.”
Nearly 8,000 people liked the post, with one exclaiming, “Omg, that’s a game-changer for me!” I’m in my 40’s, I didn’t know that, I can’t believe how many times I had to go back and I was afraid to break a few.
Another said, “What sorcery you are showing us! Well, no more dislocating an arm trying to reach things that seem out of reach.
A third added: ‘OMG I wish I had known that the other day literally standing on the shelves hanging over my life grabbing a bottle of wine for my partner lol.’
‘CERTAINLY NOT. I usually have to wait until the aisle is clear before I do a running jump and grab (x7) before I inevitably give up and go on with my day hating my parents for creating a vertical challenge chess,’ wrote a fourth.
The post racked up over 8,000 likes, with many admitting they had no idea the shelves had this device
However, some social media users claimed they had known about the hack for some time, as supermarket workers showed them after asking for help.
One commented: “I’ve known that for years…damn great idea.” Prevents people from stretching or climbing to retrieve those from behind. My partner didn’t know and was shocked when I made it to Tesco and asked how I knew.
Another said: ‘A guy showed me this at Aldi, it’s a game changer, safer too. I regularly climb on shelves when I don’t have a tall friend with me.
